box question

hi, are we allowed to sculpt the box into any shape we want ?
could i sculpt it into a large rock face and have my dragon gripping onto it ? or is the box just meant as a simple surface to ground your sculpt?

thanks

mrpeculiar: You're very welcome! If there's someone with a great idea that will add to the experience value of the challenge, I'm always welcome for input. And that dragon looks pretty good, I like the muscular structure you're defining. The pose makes it appear noble, lighthearted, like a white dragon.

darkmonk: Hey there! You most certainly can, that sounds really cool.

Now, as ClassicGamer requested the Hungarian Horntail from Harry Potter, what would be extra cool is if whoever does do it, also sculpt the pedestal into one of the towers of Hogwarts and have the dragon gripping on to it. Oh man that would certainly look awesome.

Freespace-3DT I have a quick question

Are we allowed to subd the hands and feet to allow us more polys?

Of course this would add polys to the original base mesh thats why I am asking if it is legal to do this.

Thanks in advance and I think I know what the answer will be but I just wanted it pointed out.

Oh and one more thing do we have to show a sub D level 1 poly count screenshot to prove we didn't add anymore polys? (in relation to the above question)

Scottleroc: You should be allright to subdivide things locally, as long as it all stays within Zbrush/Mudbox. Prodiving subd level 1 screenshot along with your work is not required, but some people do it and it's pretty neat to see the sculpt at different subdivisions.

Cool challenge dude I guess the people at Dragonlance would frown at your choice of a challenge poster I hope to get myself some dragon meal if I can muster the free time.

M_Cederstrom: Let it rip, man.

arthurduque: Looking forward to your dragon.

mrpeculiar: Just take care not to make the scales too powerful, otherwise details like eyes/teeth could get lost from a distance. I love the mouth you did for the dragon.

delavega: Welcome, welcome!

Zoli: Glad you like the theme! Yes, it's allowed to pose the dragon, make it look as cool as possible!

mrpeculiar: Oh, that's too cool!

But what is the diference, moving some vertexes in mudboy in cinema is the same, the effetct is. will somebody know, if i move them in other program ? wtf
If there is no difference in the effect, then it shouldn't be a problem for you to use your Mudbox or ZBrush to do the job. Of course, we won't know if you have used another software package to do this, but these challenges are all about coming together and tackling something under the same guidelines, using the same programmes and coming up with something great under the same rules and restrictions as everyone else. Every challenge has restrictions, that's just how it is.

Sorry to butt in Freespace! Over to you
